 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I come before God in prayer,

Because of my trust in Him;

Let me show how much I care,

Keeping me from being grim.


Let not enemies rejoice,

To humiliate me;

Treachery thwarted by choice,

Through the Lord letting me see.


Assist me to understand,

Teaching me of His pathways;

Guiding to truth of His demand,

Following commands always.


He is God who delivers,

Relying on Him all day long;

As one of His believers,

That stops the pain to prolong.


Compassion to faithful deeds,

For I act in this manner;

Since God has fulfilled my needs,

Since I fly high His banner.


He remembers not my sin,

Nor of my rebellious acts;

His Spirit cleanses within,

Since my confession detracts.


The Lord is faithful to me,

Extending me His favor;

Wisdom for insight to see,

He is truly my Savior.


The Lord is both kind and fair,

Teaching sinners how to live;

How to love and how to care,

Being able to forgive.


The meek He guides in judgment,

And humbled to what is right;

Offers all an atonement,

That directs us to the light.


The Lord is reliable,

Always proving faithfulness;

Actions justifiable,

Of heavenly blessedness.


Reputation of His sake,

Pardons my iniquity;

Promises He will not break,

No longer being guilty
